Great atmosphere - Live Music on the weekend

Love listening to Mark the Piano guy. Great bar and appetizers if you want to hang out before dinner.

Had dinner at Adam's last month with some friends we have not seen an a good while. We've been to Adam's 3 or 4 times in the past and always left satisfied so I picked Adam's for our dinner out.

The place needs some update. They offer live piano which is great. Menu looks fine but food could be more tasteful. I ordered escargots which comes topped with puff dough. Interesting idea, the meat was tender but I would prefer more juice. I also ordered a she crab soup which was very disappointing as the flour was not incorporated properly.... More

This was the absolute worst experience I have ever encountered in both a restaurant and owner. When the reservation was made we assumed it would be the normal menu, even when the reservation was confirmed no mention was made of a special menu. Upon arrival we were ushered into the basement and was told it was a buffet at $79.99... More

I setup reservations weeks and advance and was called back a few days before and told there would be a set menu at $79.99 per person. By this time it was already to late to get anything at another restaurant so I wen with it. Our waiter was excellent but everything else had a bit to be desired. The appetizer... More

We had a reservation for eight, we didn't get seated until 45' minutes later, after much much persistence. In the meantime, people were being seated left and right. Two hours later, we have yet to receive our food. We were absolutely famished. So we tried to bring everything to the managers attention-he didn't even bother to come out, he offered... More

It's not easy to find an upscale restaurant in Buford. Granted there weren't many people in on a Tuesday so we got great attention. The moroccan chicken Pastilla Roll was excellent with an almond vinegarette dip--different. My husband's Grilled Atlantaic Salmon was wonderful with its lemon beurre blanc sauce topped with a basil pesto. The grilled veggie with a goat... More

We eat at this restaurant frequently and always think of this as an upbeat fun dining experience. Last night, 1/10/2015, we were seated at one of the tables next to the piano where we have sat many times before. However, last night people were aloud to crowd around the piano and became obnoxious after several shots and heavy drinking. At... More
